You scared me! -- so I Googled it. It sounds like the show isn't doing all that well in the ratings, but that the short season had more to do with the writers' strike than anything else:

"'Dirt' will see a shortened season this time around; after the show's production was hit by the writers strike, FX opted not to produce more episodes beyond the seven that had already been completed. It's understood that the episode-order cutback does not affect 'Dirt's' chances at a third-season renewal."

I haven't watched the season finale yet (I'm a weirdo about "saving" the shows I like in my DVR), but I'm sad to know that that's it for a while...again.

Omg you scared me! I was also shocked that there weren't too many episodes this season! But I really hope it'll be back for a 3rd session
